    Shared bathroom (also with MEN!) open shower. No privacy at all, not properly described on Orbitz booking, very noisy at 6am for people in the kitchen, no parking (I had to leave the car in the road with payment).

    It is in great location. Very clean, comfortable beds, big clean kitchen with coffee, tea, some food to everyone like cereal. It's very good that there are towels in rooms. Minus is bathroom for ladies because shovers don't have doors!

    It's ok, nothing special, and not memorable (not for the right reasons at least)

    No reception

    I was unable to get my room, since there is no reception and I wasn't informed on getting in touch with the hostel prior to my arrival. Huge disappointment.

    Good location but not much more

    Clean place in a good location. Apart from that not really worth the money. Entrance to the hostel looks like a delivery entrance. The only way to know is to see the hvc on the sign and something in finish. There is barely any information regarding check-in and check-out; I've no idea if I checked out correctly. The only info I could find was a note at the bottom of one sign saying that I should leave both keys in the room. Bathroom is surprisingly clean, but only one shower working in the men's room for 15 rooms or so. Virtually no sound insulation between the hallway, so prepare to wake up in the middle of the night.

    Central location; clean, simple and functional

    Convenient, central location, close to downtown and universities. Simple and functional facilities, with a large kitchen and dining room and two shared bathrooms with (old-fashioned) washing machines. The rooms were large, with cupboards and drawers to organize one's things. Good idea to put keys on a hook by the door to be convenient to grab if heading down the hall. Wifi in the room worked without problems. I never saw a staff person but the place was clean. Entrance via key code was convenient when I arrived late at night, but when I didn't see the key safe right away I tried to call and did not reach anyone. (I then found the key and all was fine.) The walls are thin enough that even quiet sounds carry, and the electronic keys are somewhat loud. There is a flight of stairs from the entrance to the hostel.

    En jäänyt nukkumaan

    Hintaan nähden siisti paikka yöpyä, naapurit olivat kuitenkin sen verran äänekästä porukkaa (äänieristystä ei ole minkäänlaista) että yöksi tuli lähdettyä muualle. Väsyneelle matkalaiselle, jota pienet häiriöt eivät häiritse, voisi toimiakin hyvin.
